Weight management specialist Slim-Be is adding to its range of all green traffic light products with the launch of a gluten free porridge.

Slim-Be’s Magic Porridge Pots are available in three flavours – original, golden syrup and blueberry.

The ‘just add water’ porridge can be eaten from the pot and contains 197 calories per 54g serving. It includes Konjac, a natural root extract that swells in the stomach to provide a feeling of fullness. The RRP will be £1.49.

Founder of Slim-Be, former chef and food development specialist, Franco Beer, says: “We have created a tasty, convenient and satisfying porridge that’s low in sugar and gluten free, so it will meet the needs of a wide range of consumers.”

Worldwide Brands has been appointed UK distributor, and the product launch will be supported by a comprehensive national marketing campaign.

Guy Harris, commercial director at Worldwide Brands says: “The convenient porridge sector is very buoyant, but many of the popular brands have high sugar content. Slim-Be’s Magic Porridge Pots contain typically half the sugar of many other brands so the product offers a viable, more healthy alternative.”
